The new 2014 compact model Excalibur dehydrator 4400 comes with 4 trays offering just under 4 square feet of drying space (half the total drying space of the 5 tray version). This model is fitted with an on/off switch and new 220V thermostat. Due to its much smaller overall size, it is suited to those who are space challenged or only dehydrating small quantities but want the efficiency and reliability offered by Excalibur. There is no built-in timer with this model but it can be used with a conventional plug-in timer which can be purchased from any hardware store or supermarket.
Excalibur Parallexx System DiagramIt has a 4″ fan and heating element mounted onto the rear wall. Cool, dry air is sucked in through the back of the dehydrator, heated up and then evenly distributed across each tray as shown in the diagram. During the dehydration process, the warm air removes the moisture from the food and this moist air is pushed out through the front and replaced with dry air from the back. Horizontal airflow provides even drying, eliminating the need for rotation of the trays during dehydrating.
Built to the highest standards in the USA, 35 years of manufacturing expertise and their patented “Parallexx” horizontal drying process make this dehydrator the leader in its field for food dehydrating.
